This orange blossomed plant is currently growing in my outdoor entry way. It is in the same pot in which I bought it last year. This is the first time it has bloomed for me. I water when it is dry and fertilize w/Osmocote once or twice a year. There appear to be 3 bulbs in the container. One stalk is up and blooming, the second is up and starting to show color and the third is up and full of buds. Definitely an easy and rewarding plant. I plan to divide it after it is thru blooming. It does require bright shade here.
